If you switched DVDs and you plugged it into an electrical outlet and it is still happening, you should take it in to have someone look at it.

Some of the common causes of this issue can be found below.
  1. Take the disc out of the unit.

    • Verify that the disc is clean and not scratched.

    • If disc does not appear to be clean wipe it with a soft lint free
      cloth.

  2. Try other discs. Verify that they are clean and not scratched.

  3. Unplug the unit for 2-3 minutes.

  4. After plugging the unit back in, try multiple discs to see if they
    work.

  5. If problems persist I would have to say there is something over heating and it cant be fixed or is not worth the cost of fixing

Dvd player skips after it warms up.


Hello Forshythemart,

I've seen this happen many times do several brands of dvd player.

The one questions if where do you have your dvd player ? In an entertainment cabinet ? On top of another piece of electronic equipment perhaps ?

The reason I am asking these questions is that I believe your dvd player is overheating. Typically that will cause it to stop working properly. You need to make sure it is getting better ventilation be it outside of a cabinet or making sure it isn't sitting on anything generating more heat.

If this isn't the case then please post back and let me know. The more information you can provide the better I can help solve your problem. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

When you play a recorded show from a DVD player


As long as you leave the unit in standby mode and do not change the disc in the meantime, it should start from the last position.

If, however, you're smart enough to have bought DVD-RAM discs (they're ACE!), you can just hit Create Chapter on the remote control and skip directly to that chapter when you next view that disc.

ILO Recorder DVD05R - Playback jumps 10min, 20 min and more...


Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.

DVD'S SKIP


Open the top cover and remove the laser housing cover. You should see what looks like a door-hole peeper which is the top lens on the laser itself. Using a "lightly" windex coated Q-Tip carefully clean off the top area of the lens and put the covers back on...
If the unit still skips then it's probably time for a new pick-up table and it will require a bit more testing in the shop to determine the failure.
Hope this helps!

All DVD`s installed in player skip .Also DVD`s that showed title donot now.


first thing i would do i clean the lens with 90% isoprople alcohol and a q-tip, if that doesn't work watch the laser eye again and the movement is the laser look like it tries to catch up???
i would put a dc volt meter on the motor and the motor should stay at lower voltage if it climbs then there is something with the rails or worm gear. let me know what you find out.
